Planets Diameters

Most popular at the top

  • Solar System Astrophysicsby Eugene F. Milone; William Wilson

    Springer 2008; US$ 139.00

    Covers the field of solar system astrophysics beginning with basic tools of spherical astronomy and coordinate frames and celestial mechanics. This title features the atmospheres chapter that includes discussions of circulation, applicable also to the subsequent discussion of the gas giants. more...

  • Geology and Habitability of Terrestrial Planetsby Kathryn E. Fishbaugh; Philippe Lognonné; François Raulin

    Springer 2007; US$ 269.00

    Discusses the multi-faceted problem of how the habitability of a planet co-evolves with the geology of the surface and interior, the atmosphere, and the magnetosphere. This book delves into what life needs to exist and ultimately to thrive, the early environments of the young terrestrial planets, and the role of volatiles in habitability. more...

  • Planetary Ring Systemsby Ellis D. Miner; Randii R. Wessen; Jeffrey N. Cuzzi

    Springer 2007; US$ 52.95

    A comprehensive book on the topic of planetary rings systems. It covers the scientific significance of ring studies, the history of their discovery and characterization, the observations of Pioneer 10 at Jupiter, Pioneer 11 and Voyager 1 at Jupiter and Saturn, Voyager 2 at all four giant planets of the solar system, and Galileo at Jupiter. more...

  • Planetary Crustsby S. Ross Taylor; Scott McLennan

    Cambridge University Press 2008; US$ 56.00

    This comprehensive reference volume surveys the development of crusts on solid planets and satellites in the solar system. more...

  • Cathodoluminescence and its Application in the Planetary Sciencesby Arnold Gucsik

    Springer 2008; US$ 159.00

    Cathodoluminescence microscopy/spectroscopy is a powerful technique providing detailed information on the shock metamorphism of target rocks, biosignatures of meteorites and mineralogy of the pre-solar grains. Moreover, it can be used as an in-situ method to classify the solid-atmospheric-liquid interactions on the surface of Mars. more...

  • International geophysics seriesby John Marshall; R. Alan Plumb

    Elsevier Science 1978; US$ 79.95

    For advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students in atmospheric, oceanic, and climate science, Atmosphere, Ocean and Climate Dynamics is an introductory textbook on the circulations of the atmosphere and ocean and their interaction, with an emphasis on global scales. It will give students a good grasp of what the atmosphere and oceans look... more...

  • Theory of Planetary Atmospheresby Thomas P Chamberlain; Donald M. Hunten

    Elsevier Science 1990; US$ 72.95

    Our subject is, of course, nothing more than applied physics and chemistry. But in addition to those basic sciences the student of planetary atmospheres needs an overview of atmospheric structure and physical processes as presently understood. This book is intended to help fill that need for both graduate students and research scientists. Although... more...

  • ADVANCES IN GEOSCIENCES (A 6-VOLUME SET), 25by Anil Bhardwaj

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2011; US$ 173.00

    This invaluable volume set of Advances in Geosciences continues the excellent tradition of the Asia-Oceania scientific community in providing the most up-to-date research results on a wide range of geosciences and environmental science. The information is vital to the understanding of the effects of climate change, extreme weathers on the most populated... more...

  • Highlights in Helioclimatologyby Jorge A. Perez-Peraza; Igor Y. Libin

    Elsevier Science 2012; US$ 150.00

    Written by pioneers in the field, Highlights in Helioclimatology examines the scientific evidence related to the influence of solar activity on climate and the resulting atmospheric process that creates hurricanes. In addition to providing the science behind the phenomenon, this book also provides tools for aiding in hurricane prediction, specifically... more...

  • Dune Worldsby Ralph D. Lorenz; James Zimbelman

    Springer 2010; US$ 129.00

    This book describes how sand dunes work, why they are the way they are in different settings, and how they are being studied. Particular attention is paid to their formation and appearance elsewhere in the solar system. New developments in knowledge about dunes make for an interesting story – like the dunes themselves, dune science is dynamic... more...
